PhD Program Profile: University of Colorado at Boulder

Location:  Boulder, CO
Program Name:  Cognitive Neuroscience - Combined PhD Triple Major
Department Name(s):  Institute of Cognitive Science, Center for Neuroscience, Department of Computer Science
Program Goals:  "provide exceptional breadth and depth of interdisciplinary training in the cognitive sciences"
Minimum GPA:  3.0
GRE Scores:  High (but unstated)
Pros:
  • I would really enjoy living in the mountains
  • the triple major would give me many options
Cons: 
  • this sounds VERY difficult to get into, as I have to apply to multiple programs
  • they don't seem to do too much with cognitive modeling or dynamics
Thoughts:  While this sounds like a great program, and I will likely apply to it, I'm not sure if they offer quite what I'm looking for.  I'll keep this as one of my top choices for now, but I will spend time exploring it in more detail later.
